Yesterday we rolled out a new comment management system where anyone could easily register to be a “registered commentor” and add comments to any article.
Every comment is moderated to ensure quality.
It only took about 4 comments before we received the first of one author slamming another author’s article. Sheesh. Worse, they were competitors of each other.
So now we get to create a set of rules for how we’ll manage the comments. Overall, I intend to set a precedence that we will not approve negative tone comments, but ones that offer constructive thoughts with some critical thinking will be allowed.
